SAN JOSE, Calif., 22 May 2014. LynuxWorks Inc. has changed its name to Lynx Software Technologies, focused on deliver solutions for the connected embedded world, officials say.
As more and more embedded devices become connected to the Internet, the need for built-in security becomes a necessity for embedded developers. Lynx Software Technologies provides military-grade security in both its LynxOS real-time operating system (RTOS) and LynxSecure separation kernel hypervisor, giving a secure foundation for this new generation of connected embedded devices, explains a company spokesperson. The new rootkit detection capabilities provided by LynxSecure provides advanced cyber-security protection for embedded devices even if other legacy operating systems are being used.
Over its 25 year history, the company's products have been used in successive generations of embedded devices, and have been adopted by developers building aerospace and defense, avionics, and security applications and devices.
LynxOS-178 is a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) RTOS designed to satisfy the objectives of the DO-178B level A specification and meet requirements for Integrated Modular Avionics developers, officials say. The LynxOS-178 time- and space-partitioned RTOS has been awarded the FAA Reusable Software Component (RSC) certification and provides POSIX conformance, enabling developers to take advantage of the time-to-market and investment-protection benefits of open standards-based development.
